2. Consider changing your bedtime.
If you’re experiencing sleeplessness or insomnia consistently, think about going to bed later so the time you spend in bed is spent sleeping.
3. Make your bedroom primarily a place for sleeping.
It’s not a good idea to use your bed for paying bills, doing work, watching TV, etc.
Help your body recognize that this is a place for rest or intimacy. Make sure your room is well ventilated and the temperature consistent.
4. Incorporate bedtime rituals.
Listening to soft music or sipping a cup of herbal tea cues your body that it’s time to slow down and begin to prepare for sleep.
5. Relax for a while before going to bed.
Spending quiet time can make falling asleep easier.
6. Get out of bed if unable to sleep.
Don’t lie in bed awake. Go into another room and do something relaxing until you feel sleepy.
